Today I want to share an easy recipe for quiche, using many ingredients that you may already have.
As the weather warms up so does egg production. This is a great way to use up those eggs.
My favorite meat to use in quiche is bacon. You could also use chicken or lunch meat. If you are having ham for Easter, using that in quiche would be delicious!
I usually have cheddar or colby jack cheese in the fridge, so that is what I use. Whatever your favorite cheese is, use it.
My herb of choice for this recipe is parsley. I love the vibrant color that it adds and it also provides a great taste. I use fresh when I have it, but dried also works.
Recipe for Quiche:
4 beaten eggs
1 1/2 cups milk
salt and pepper
parsley (2 tablespoons or to your taste)
8 ounces shredded cheddar cheese
1 tablespoon flour
4 pieces (or more) cooked bacon, crumbled
9 inch pie crust
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
In a bowl, stir together eggs, milk, salt, pepper, and parsley.
Toss together cheese and flour. Then stir into egg mixture.
Gently stir in the bacon.
Pour the mixture into the pie shell.
Bake for 40 – 50 minutes, or until knife inserted near center comes out clean.
* I usually double this recipe, hoping for left overs for lunches the next day. Heat a slice up in the microwave to eat or heat up and pack in a lunch thermos.
